Both Premium And Standard Cars In GT5 Will Have Interior Views
Ever since the Premium cars for Gran Turismo 5 were revealed, there has been much confusion concerning the status of non-Premium vehicles.
Specifically, whether or not it will only be the 200 Premium cars that get an in-cockpit view. The "special" cars will feature an insane amount of detail, right down to seams in the chair fabric and the smallest dashboard instrumentation; the "Standard" cars will also have interiors, just not as meticulously designed. You may have heard that the standard cars will simply be remodeled versions of cars from GT4, but Polyphony wants to remind you that they're using the textures and physics the other cars have. Essentially, the models are being reused but it's hardly a copy-and-paste job. And here's the quote that clarifies the in-cockpit view, from IGameReport:
Standard cars do indeed have a cockpit/dashboard view, just not nearly as detailed as the premium cars. The existing cars are not just being copied; they are all being generated properly to create authentic experiences from car to car."
I think what people were starting to think was that the Premium cars would be the only ones worthy of GT5, while most of the cars were just cropped out of GT4 and plopped into the new installment...as if that makes any sense whatsoever. But common sense is lacking these days, especially amongst those who wish to tear down a game they don't like, regardless of factual evidence. In short, there will be a difference between Premium and Standard but either way, it's going to be Gran Turismo 5.
